I was driving on the freeway and got stuck behind a semi. I went to pass the semi and my truck had no power, would not get over 40mph and as soon as I started going up hill my truck started to overheat. I pulled over and thought I was just overheating. I had to turn my truck back on to move off to the shoulder and my truck was fine. Still had problems with power going uphill.

Do you
have the same problem?

Is this an automatic or manual transmission?

When climbing hills, what were the engine rpm?

On level roads, how fast can you go?

Was anything done prior to this occurring?
